with congressman ryan. in that last debate, i was-or -- i was not sure whether other romney was there whether to endorse or debate obama. -- i was not sure whether romney was there to endorse or debate obama. it was kind of amazing. all those things i heard him say 04, i wasn't hurting -- heard him say before, i wasn't hearing him say them anymore. my grandfather from scranton used to say that -- beware of the converted. [laughter] he sure sounded converted, didn't he? i was wondering what happened to the mitt romney -- maybe casper, the family ghost of them. -- the friendly ghost took him. i don't know. as hard as they tried, they cannot run from the record. here is the truth. they had made it very clear they do not have the same view on women's rights as we do. on women's health, they want to turn the power back to the insurance company. back when they can charge wittman 50% more than men for the same policy. when they could label pregnancy pre-existing conditions. when the governor was asked at the second debate about how he felt about equal pay for equal work, what did he do? he started t
represent. >> we're going to move on. dr. ryan budget. it's been a huge issue. you this question for you, congresswoman to give repeatedly sought to tie your opponent to the ryan budget. is a very successful strategy that you employed in the special election what you want to see jakarta occupy but given the fact that mitt romney while saying he is on the same page as congressman ryan has outlined plans including for medicare that are substantially different from what right has a post twice now and gendered you voted no on, is this a fair line of attack is. hochul: they are still trying to break the promise made to seniors in 1965 that would have a guarantee program that will pay been since her high school job that money should be waiting for us when we retired. it didn't work in 1960 of any idea of even turn part of it back to the insurance companies basically would jeopardize the solid promise we make your cities. so i understand why their water it down and backpedaling from what they had come and thank god we had an election last year to put the spotlight on whether -- [inaudible] and
to be back in iowa. [applause] don't think this is the last you're going to see of me and paul ryan. this state may be the state that decides what kind of an america we're going to have and what kind of lives our families are going to have. we're counting on you. and the choice you make this november will shape great things. historic things. and those things will determine the most important and intimate things in our lives. in the lives of our homes, our families, our loved ones. this is an election about america. it's an election about the american family. now all leches matter, of course. but this one matters a great deal. over the years of our nation's history, choices our fellow citizens have made have changed the country's course. they were turning points of defining consequence. we're today at a turning point. our national debt and liabilities threaten to crush our future. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment we need. the same -- at the same time, emerging powers seek to shape the world in their image. ch
are joined now via skype from the campaign trail from niles, ohio by democratic congressman tim ryan, a member of the house budget committee. thanks for coming on. i want to get your reaction to the october unemployment numbers that came out -- 7.9% unemployment rate. 171,000 jobs added in october. your take on what those numbers mean in the near future and long term. guest: they are solid numbers. when think about where we are coming from in ohio to have those numbers moving in the right direction it think is positive. now it's about -- with the election season here -- who will be able to get this economy moving faster. there is a jobs bill in congress. speaker boehner will not bring it up for a vote. it will create up to another 1 million or 2 million jobs. getting people back to work with road and bridges and infrastructure -- teacher, police, and fire -- to take us to the next level. these are solid numbers, but we have more to do. we have to make sure we have a president that will get the job done for us. host: four days out from the election. you say solid numbers. how do you t
. your question goes to mr. murphy. >> we have seen different numbers on what the paul ryan plan would do in the fact to increase costs to seniors, anywhere from $6,350 to about $200 a month. what kind of number can we look at and say this is what a cut will look like under this plan because of a large area of the budget that needs to be looked at? >> that is the kaiser family foundation study. under the ryan plan, 60% of seniors will face cost increases. this is something that needs to be addressed. under their plan, we end medicare as we know it. we need to reach across the aisle and ensure that medicare is there for generations to come. i was talking to seniors and you could see the fear in their eyes, worrying that medicare will be taken from them. we cannot let it happen. we need real solutions. under the affordable care act, they found inefficiencies and they have taken back away from insurance company executives, from the pharmaceuticals, and given it back to seniors, this is what we need to do to bring down the long term cost curve that is driving our costs through the roof. >> we

is dubbed the romney-ryan real recovery road rally and begins with who's who of congressman and governors and luminaries to spanning out through 11 battleground through the weekend. romney visits virginia tomorrow when the new national unemployment numbers are scheduled for release and wraps up in new hampshire, where the national telegraph newspaper that backed him four years ago endorsed romney today. >> on the romney press bus as we roll toward evening rally in jacksonville. romney campaign held teleconference with reporters this afternoon and said winning is possible, though not certain. they said they are exactly where they would hope to be in the final week of the campaign, with the battleground state of the polls virtually tied. they point out when it comes to favorability, romney is ahead of president obama. bret? >> bret: technology, carl cameron, rolling on the bus. carl, thank you. ♪ ♪ >> bret: this is a fox news alert. late breaking details in the ongoing scandal on the attack of the u.s. consulate on benghazi, libya, that killed the u.s. ambassador and three others there.
instead. the vice president continues on tuesday to ohio. congressman ryan is spending the weekend in ohio on a four hundred mile bus tour. we showed you heard it -- showed you his appearance earlier. mitt romney has canceled a number of events tomorrow and is instead campaigning in ohio with paul ryan. on monday, obama will head to the florida institute of technology. in about half an hour, we will take you live to lynchburg for the event with vice-president joe biden and his wife. until then, a look at the battleground state of north carolina from this morning's "washington journal. tell us what makes north carolina battleground state. guest: traditionally, it has been a red state. it is moving more and more into a competitive state, and there are several reasons why. one of the things our organization does is ask every year the voters where they stand in terms of conservative level. only florida and virginia, in terms of southern states, are to the left, so it is pretty divided. it also has political progressives, so it has been pretty much a modern state traditionally. there has been a
with mitt romney and paul ryan. [applause] >> let me ask you, will you do everything you can do to ensure we can bring back america's promise. are you going to do it? put up your hand if you're going to make phone calls, commit to mitt today. let me see your hands. commit to mitt. this year, in ohio, you can commit early to mitt. go down to lorraine, 1985 north ridge road and vote early. you can leave after the event here -- and then on election day we cna find five people we know to get to the polls to commit to mitt. going for it. and we have to help the republican team. he needs a team that is with him. we have to make sure jim is reelected. jim jordan, bob gibbs are here. and i want to be the senior senator from ohio. we need josh mandel in ohio. we need him now. you know, president obama -- over the last four years has made a lot of decisions. some of them, he siad would result in new jobs that haven't happened. he said he'd cut the deficit. it hasn't happened. we have someone who is running for president who knows how to bring back jobs. he has the experience. he has the experience and
. along with the economy. democrats have tried to link republicans to paul ryan's plans to turn medicare into a voucher program, something democrats say would be disastrous for seniors. republicans believe they have neutralized that message by arguing obama care hurts seniors by slashing medicare. redistricting will have a big impact, helping republicans. >> for the most part, republicans because they made such overwhelming gains not only in congress but in state legislatures last year, they were able to control the redistricting process in a lot of key states. for example, north carolina, where democrats will probably lose a couple seats this cycle. >> gop gains look likely in districts from north carolina to arkansas, among others. in fact, party operatives say they even put traditional blue states like rhode island and massachusetts into play. democrats are trying hard to unseat gop incumbents in blue states like california, new york, and illinois. and could see gains in maryland and florida. so why do these house races matter? members of congress will have to make big decisions in th
uaw workers that are here. it is the policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to put in place that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt romney is going to. balks, we are in the fourth quarter. the score is tied. we're in the red zone. we got the momentum on our side. are we going to be sure that we take mitt romney over the goal line in the next eight days? ladies and gentlemen, the next president of the united states, mitt romney. b >> thank you. what an avon lake welcome. thank you so very much. thank you, senator portman, and the lieutenant governor has been going with us all over the state. her support means everything in the world. the senator was my sparring partner. he was really strong. i finally -- it is nice not to argue with him all the
to address the challenges we face. you have a ryan plan, not once but twice that my opponent voted for that continues to give the cuts to the most fortunate americans. to pay for that, it is asking seniors to take medicare, medicare guarantee to turn it into a voucher. it's taking students asking them to pay more, it's taking middle class putting average increase on their taxes. >> what you're saying, it's a general sense of fairness, 70/30 that you come up with. congressman before you were elected to congress, you signed a pledge to grover norquist to never raise taxes. why the change? >> certainly what it does, it talks about if you're going to lower rates, you got lower them in others. i don't believe necessarily raising taxes is the answer. >> you're now open to increased revenue? two years ago -- >> when i got to washington, things were worse than i anticipated. what i do know, you got to work together to get a solution. what i am looking to try to do is solve these big problems. i come forth with an idea and a plan. we look at more and more out of work today than we want to s

of congressman ryan, and that would be governor romney's running mate. so maybe defying conventional wisdom, wisconsin is leaning fairly heavily in president obama's favor. >> reporter: that's right. now, paul ryan has been seen as an asset, obviously, to governor romney and he has been making a whole lot of appearances. i'll tell you, the crowd behind me is getting excited, ashleigh, because air force one is taxing over towards us where president obama is going to be coming out shortly and making his remarks. yes, paul ryan has been an asset to governor romney. it's why some are saying the race here has been pretty tight, although there is a small lead, a consistent lead, for president obama. today we saw "wall street journ journal" nbc news poll, three points up the president is here in wisconsin. yesterday there was a poll in milwaukee, a marquette university poll that had the president up by much more, eight points. you talk to the obama campaign, they'll point to that marquette poll and they'll say it's more accurate. it seems likie internal polls ae in between the two. the bottom line
candidates think are important, both mitt romney and paul ryan going to pennsylvania. that state. does that mean you're in trouble there in pennsylvania? >> no. i think it means the romney/ryan campaign is desperate to try to figure out how to win this race outside of the states that they've been contesting for 15 months. i think that's all pennsylvania is for the romney/ryan campaign. john mccain spent the last weekend in 2008 in pennsylvania in a desperate attempt to do this as well. >> the president he is making three stops in wisconsin, though. that is a state, however, that in maps that the president's campaign manager has shown us months ago was in the safe category for the president. why does the president need to spend so much time in wisconsin in these final days? >> what the president wants to do in these last stops, as you heard him on the video there, is present the case one last time in front of people in wisconsin. we want to show people we're moving this country forward and moving this economy forward. >> that's a safe state, why is the president spending his vital time
. and if you read the plan you would see that. another point that you brought up is endorsed the ryan plan. no, i said they were plans. at least if they have a forward thinking and the courage to bring out various plans. which few people in your party on how we get social security secure, how we get medicare secure let's take these plans and have an adult discussion because we cannot continue the very near hitting the sand but there's been many things you've said that tom smith said we've never -- i've never said that. i am speaking for my plan, written plan, so please take a look at the plan and then you will see that i don't want to and social security for seniors. it emphatically states that seniors on it now i will do nothing. that will be protected. that's between the government and the them. that's protected. but all i had some plans that will save it for the long haul and i will end at that. you're very gracious with time. smith: de leggitt rebuttal time? >> moderator: how much you need? how about 15 seconds. smith: the most radical proposals in the congress and the senate any way that

at least one more time. paul ryan is here today. that says it all. both campaigns know that this is a very competitive state to the end. the suburbs are the key areas. make this point before i throw it back to you, 1.3 million people have already voted in the state of colorado. i talked to is the secretary of state today, he says that's probably about half of the electorate and says you can still vote until tomorrow. more than 50% of the votes will be cast before election day and they're already starting to count them. we were watching that process in downtown denver. >> are we getting any indication on how the independent voters are moving right now? >> reporter: it's a critical question because this state is roughly evenly divided between democrats, republicans, independents or unaffiliated voters. if you look at our poll, our poll shows a dead heat. and 49% of the independents go for president obama and joe biden, 47% go for governor romney and paul ryan. moderate voters who tend to live in the suburbs, many of them independents, 60% for the president to 38% for governor romney. if you'

. medicare, no vouchers. that's the -- that's the ryan plan that was in the budget that congressman ryan got through, turn medicare into a voucher program where seniors get a voucher, shop, and buy insurance. i'm dead against it. i oppose it as firmly as i could. the issue with medicare is the same as the issue with anthem or any other payment mechanism, hospital, and medical costs go up, and what we have to do is figure out a different payment, called the one in portland, one in louiston, and one in agus that where we are starting to pay for health and prevention in primary care rather than paying for procedures. i think that's the secret that we have to go to, and it's happening right now in maine, went we're already seeing results. i talked to the directer of the of the hospital in eastern maine, they are already seeing results from that way of handling health care to bring the cost down, and that's the way we're going to save medicare. >> moderator: mr. woods? woods: there's $10,000 wart of checks there from the attack pledge that didn't come through. medicare is critically -- dill: a pl

. that is where republican congressman paul ryan told supporters the federal budget ends det -- and debt are looming threats for the country's future. >> we need to balance this budget. we need to get the debt under control. we have a moral obligation for the children and grandchildren to make sure they get a debt- free nation and not the one the president has in front of them. they will decide who is president the next four years. today on the trail, november 2nd, 2012. we'll bring in mark, our fox 5 political analyst. the job markets out now, they're a step in the right direction. the republicans spinning this is not good enough. how big of a difference can this make this close to the election? >> it didn't hurt the president. 171,000 jobs, that is edition, .1 of 1% unemployment went up. they didn't want to go over 8%. it's a on you wash overra -- awash, overall, he escaped ominous terrible figures. >> talk about independent voters. so much is made about it the last few months. do you feel at this point that either one of the candidates has made real headway into the independent vote?
was stolen. we all have a responsibility not to live permanently on the grassy knoll. host: ryan in springfield, tennessee, republican. caller: can you hear me? host: we are listening. caller: the congressional races, there are four of them in virginia. all three of them are republicansi who picked up democrats. i want to hear him talk about those four races. i believe republicans will hold those three but i think frank could in the future go to a democrat, his seat. i think frank connolly will hold on. i wonder if he thinks there will be a couple of upsets in senate races too? shelly berkeley will defeat her opponent in nevada and i think todd akin will be the winner in his race. host: is this a hobby of yours to follow politics? caller: yes. guest: i'm happy to answer a fellow hobbyists. it becomes your vocation if you let. in virginia, i can simplify the current situation for you. all the incumbents are going to win. they have done a marvelous job working with the state legislature in creating districts that it would be very difficult for them to lose them. so they get my gold

't be the -- the difference between tommy thompson and myself couldn't be more clear. he starts with supporting the ryan plan which has massive tax cuts for the very wealthy, $260,000 for the average millionaire like tommy. it pays for it with an increase in the middle income taxes. beyond that, what concerns me the most, and you talked earlier when you asked tommy about compromise. he signedded a pledge to a washington, d.c. lobbyist by the name of groar norquist that commits he'll never ask the wealthy to do more. that is wrong. in order for us to all have a fair shot, we all have to do our fair share. we need balance as we confront this very real and serious problem. >> moderator: following up, you'll get a chance to respond. let me follow-up. is it really, though, enough money there to make a dent in the nation's debt by raising taxes on the wealthy? you can argue there's a fairness issue. people believe that. some people believe that. is there enough there? is there enough there, okay, we're not going to fund wars again. do we get to where we need to get if we don't touch entitlements. baldwin: we can.
both looking over their shoulders. >> you mentioned paul ryan. of course i cannot go on without asking about him and the role that he has played in this congress and the degree to which his celebrity is embraced by other republicans who are presumably, as you say, as ambitious as the. he is the one who kind of got out. he is the one who rose above the others to be plucked as mitt romney's running mate. is everybody in the republican leaders have for that matter the republican ranks happy to see in there? is the resentment of him? to their respective as much as they are said to for his brain and his facility with numbers? >> they do respect him, and i think that there are those -- the people who resent and distressed paul ryan in the republican party are the members of the so-called tuesday group, which is the group, the waiting in member group of moderate republicans in the hand. they resented the imposition, the so-called ryan budget as the republican house budget. that budget, by the way, and brian's budget pancaking around for several years when he was the ranking member of the hous
to go! five day, get to work! >> the romney/ryan ticket has persuaded and explained what their plan is. the president's been left just to attack. for him to think or say that -- that it's very difficult to get things done from the inside is pretty telling. he is the president of the united states. if he can't do it, maybe he should step aed and let someone else try. >> governor romney will say virtually anything to win, as the dealer put it, he will do anything, no matter how much confusion he must sew to do t. the president's job is not sosew confusion, but to plant the seeds of competence and growth in the american people. >> one thing i know about mitt, he does not fail and he will not fail as a president. i have seen him as a husband, as a father, as a governor, as a businessman, as a guy who turned around the olympics. in every single situation,il tell you, he has tackled each job with integrity, character, discipline and a heart so big. >> everybody here listening knows that i don't like obottom a. everybody knows that i have never been fooled pie obama. everybody knows i have a
